Strawberry Rhubarb Applesauce + Twin Cities Apple Orchards


This week’s installment of Recipe Wednesday hopes that you’ve been able to make it out to one of the wonderful Twin Cities-area apple orchards (and if you haven’t, we’ve got a list of a few to try at the end of the recipe bit). I know garden-fresh strawberries and rhubarb aren’t easy to come by this time of year, but this simple Strawberry Rhubarb Applesauce recipe from the local blog Dining With Alice looked so tasty I just had to share.

Twin Cities Apple Orchards

But first order of business, where to find these apples for the sauce? Family Fun Twin Cities has got you covered. (And as a bonus, several of these orchards also offer pumpkin patches and other fall activities. If you grab a pumpkin, you’ll want to check out another Recipe from Alice, Thanksgiving Pumpkin Rice.)
